Want China Times
Chao Tien-lin, director of Taiwan’s major opposition Democratic Progressive Party’s
Department of Chinese Affairs, returned to Taiwan on Friday after a trip to China during which he had the chance to meet Beijing’s top negotiator with Taipei.
Chao told the media that the trip was very successful and that it would be good to have more exchanges with China.
He said he will brief DPP chair Tsai Ing-wen on the visit.
Chao, who is also a legislator, made the trip in his capacity as a board member of the Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF), a semi-official intermediary body dealing with cross-Taiwan Strait affairs in the absence of official ties. [FULL STORY]
